The word prompt from the Lens-Artists: Detail
You probably have seen lots of photos of Bearded Iris especially on Cee’s FOTD Do you know why they are called a Bearded Iris. Lets have a look at some detail shall we?
Here is the Bearded Iris that I hold dear as it is a memory of a friend
A little closer, viewed from the top, and you can see the Iris a bit clearer
Once you look you can see the “beard”
Wonderful little beard
The word prompt from Frank at Dutch goes the Photo: Outdoors
The word prompt from Terri’s Sunday Stills: Great Outdoors
When you live in the forest it is always the great outdoor just outside the front or back door.
Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Lawn Ornaments
How could I not have our dear little Bobbin as my Lawn Ornament. I miss the little guy ever since my bestie had to sell her place. My Eastern Yellow Robins don’t hang around the garden as much as Bobbin did
The way to go is Which Way or along the Path
This garden is quite a sight. A collection of interesting things and someone’s treasurey
I was doing a bit of building work on the shed yesterday. In the afternoon I decided to have a break and was sitting on the step when there was a flash through the garden and onto the hibiscus. I was used to seeing Yellow-faced Honeyeaters getting a snack from the last red flowers. This time it was a smaller different coloured bird. Then all of a sudden other birds came swooping through the garden.
Here is just almost a half hour in the garden.
The Peaceful Doves are always around. They are small and can get through the wire around the chooks yard and house. They always have a supply of food.
Of course this isn’t in the garden. The dam is quite low so I was surprised to see three Pacific Black Ducks swimming around
Out front, this Grevillea is flowering. The Eastern Spinebill loves coming in to get the nectar. Sometimes they like to hover like Hummingbirds while their bill is in the flowers
Every Winter there is a small flock of Yellow-faced Honeyeaters who stay at my place.
Eastern Yellow Robins are always around. When the heat of Summer is on, they spend more time in the gullies that surround the house. Yesterday there was two Robins who chased each other around the garden
This is the visitor I have been waiting for, that first flash though the garden. Every year the little lovely Rose Robins arrive to add that splash of colour to the Winter garden.
I hope you enjoyed a quick half-hour in my garden with me.
The Sunday Stills Photo Challenge from Terri is Danger
Just going into the garden can be dangerous. I was moving some rocks on the garden border to remove some plants that were growing among the rocks when I saw the warning that could be in danger.
A Mouse Spider can give a nasty bite
Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Vanishing Point

The word prompt from Sue at Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Fences
I like a fence that defines a garden
Or a fence that disappears downhill with nature growing on its surface
Or a fence that keeps cattle on one side or the other
Or an old fence that is built in the bush using posts and wire and is still standing
Or even a bit tumble down, it’s still a fence
Or a place for a spider to build a web
Or one that is…….well just make sure you shut the gate
Or a fence that provides a post for an Eastern Yellow Robin to sit and look for a snack
Or in the featured photo, a place for an Eastern Rosella to rest for a while
